Is Donald Trump a narcissist?

The headline reads, “Trump Gets 2 Million Mentions on Facebook a Day.”
Two million? That’s 10 times as many as the second-place contender, Scott Walker. So what is it about this Trump guy? He tweets in caps as if he were twenty-five. “I truly LOVE all of the millions of people who are sticking with me despite so many media lies. There is a great SILENT MAJORITY looming!” He smiles that confident-bordering-on-cocky smile, and wins people over using only a set of white teeth. “He has made a career out of being the center of attention,” Sherri Greenberg, professor at the LBJ School Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin, told the [Wall Street] Journal. “That is Trumpism.”

DVC’S definition of TRUMPISM: THE ABILITY TO MAKE PEOPLE FORGET YOU’RE HAVING A BAD HAIR DAY.

But is he a narcissist? I can’t say for sure, since I don’t watch much TV and never saw his reality show. But here’s the official definition from the Mayo Clinic: Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. He obviously has the narcissist’s ability to charm people to his way of thinking. So I’m going to throw it out there for discussion: Is Donald Trump a narcissist? And what if it comes down to him or Hillary for President? Two narcissists duking it out, perhaps?

Let me know what YOU think. ~ DVC.
